I felt it on my heart to share this with you all A few years back my husband and I were at the verge of an ugly and brutal
divorce... When I first decided to stand for my marriage, I found myself frustrated and defeated. I was non-stop ...praying for him and our marriage. I felt in my heart I was doin...g the right thing, but to no avail I saw little to no results... Which only
brought doubt anddiscouragement. I didn't understand why I didn't see my prayers working and why my husband was just pushing me away more and being more mean and ugly with his words and actions... Finally after months and months
of struggle I was praying with some friends and they told me that I needed to change my heart and my focus. My heart and prayers had the right intentions but I was focusing on the wrong thing. I was putting to much focus on a "thing" (my marriage and my husband)
and not in My Lord! I UNKNOWINGLY made an idol out of my husband and my marriage. I thought if I prayed hard enough and long enough that that would be enough. What the Lord lead me to know was that He wanted me to NEED HIM first and foremost, I needed to be
happy and content with HIM alone despite my current painful circumstances with my husband. Once I came to understand God's revelation for my situation I changed my heart and focus to Him... I lifted up and released my husband, his salvation, and our marriage
to my Lord.
I then began to focus on my own personal walk and relationship with Him. I was DESPERATE for God, I wanted nothing more but to be as close to Him as I possibly could be without actually being in Heaven. lol Mind you, I still prayed for
my husband and my marriage on a daily basis, but I left it all in God's hands. I felt a sense of freedom and peace KNOWING that no matter how long it took, or what the "physical" circumstances were, HE WAS TAKING CARE OF IT! And I needed not worry. Now, thats
a GREAT feeling! My husband was still with his negative attitude and worldly actions, BUT, I responded with God's Love. I still hurt, cried and felt lonely at times, but God was ALWAYS there for me to fill me with His Peace and Love when I called needed it.
PRAISE and PRAYER is the best remedy for ALL and ANY of our difficult times. After over 6 months or living apart, divorce papers filled and signed... My husband WANTED to come home and work on our marriage, April 2010! He began going with me to church and
praying with me and the children. He was saved and baptized in the ocean on North Shore Hawaii by my same friend that gave me the advice of changing my hearts focus. Now, the enemy NEVER sleeps, and he will NEVER give up on the Lord's children. He hates us
and our Marriages. I would be lying if I told you everything is perfect just because of this AMAZING Miracle that God so Graciously Blessed us with. I made the mistake of letting go of my grip on God and I noticed the enemy started trying to creep back in.
Iv'e had many attacks on myself and my marriage. Often times it came from my husband. NOT like before, but still... As a Christian, Spirt filled woman and wife, and my husband begin younger in Christ I believe that it is my burden, my responsibility to stand
in the gap for my husband, and continue to pray for him. I MUST, WE ALL MUST KEEP OURSELVES IN THE WORD AND CLOSE TO OUR LORD. GRIP ONTO HIM TIGHT AS IF OUR LIVES AND MARRIAGES DEPEND ON IT, ON HIM, BECAUSE THEY REALLY DO!!! ITS A FACT!!!
human and imperfect, born in sin! Life will always have its daily struggles, some harder then others and change doesn't always come as quick or the way we would like it too, but we must NEVER cease to Believe and Trust in our Lord!!! I'm speaking from personal
experience and I believe that as God's children we are all family and will be together in Heaven together soon. If I can share, if we can share our personal struggles, "been there, done that" type of thing... We can help each other, maybe even help others
from walking the same difficult path that we did. God Bless you all. Remember to always KEEP GOD FIRST!
